A year later.

  One year ago today, we sat in an ultrasound room and learned that we had lost our first child.  We grieved quietly together, and a few weeks later I shared this

  Fast forward a year, and I can confidently say that God is good. That his grace and mercy really truly do abound in deepest waters. But I also add that, honestly, sometimes I'd rather not have to tread through those deep waters, you know? Deep waters aren't always fun.

Dear sweet baby, Though I barely knew you, I love you so much. My heart and arms still ache to hold you, but I am so thankful that you only know peace and joy and Jesus. I miss you like crazy, but I'm holding out for the day when your daddy and I will be able to look into your perfect face and hold you again with Jesus. Love, your mommy.

hugs, Katie <3 God is doing amazing things in your life right now - it's evident just as an "online friend" - you're an amazing woman and you've grown SO much from this. I can't imagine how sucky it is, but know that you're loved!!

The year anniversary was difficult. But we made it with Gods strength. Deep waters can be painful. I felt just a little more healing though, do you? Like a "OK I made it a year". I miss our precious one too. Praying for you today.

Proud of you. Praying for you. And grieving with you. Great things lie ahead, I'm sure of it.

It's been 7 months since we lost our baby and there is not a day that goes by that I do not ache for her, but our God is a great god and he is currently rocking our babies for us. What more can we ask for? Prayers for you and your family this week. . .

Thank you for continually sharing about this extremely hard process. It's encouraging to see how you have grown in the past year and you continually encourage me to grow. Like Lauren said, God has so many great things ahead for you and I can't wait to hear about them.
